Babouche

No.223

A cheerful yellow

Babouche takes its exotic name from the distinctive colour of the leather slippers worn by men in Morocco. It has a cheerful brightness that will intensify when used in large areas, but it is always dignified and never garish. Babouche can be paired with Railings for a very modern but sumptuous effect. 

Recommended Primer & Undercoat: White & Light Tones

Complementary white: House White

Babouche is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 42.

ECO-FRIENDLY AND CHILD-SAFE

Back in 2010, we moved our entire range to an eco-friendly water base that’s low odour, low VOC and child-safe, becoming the first in the industry to do so. Easy to clean without harmful solvents, in tins that can be recycled again and again, our paints help to reduce the environmental impact of redecorating your home.

Every one of our paint colours is available in a range of durable interior and exterior paint finishes, each rigorously tested to ensure an exceptional depth of colour and long-lasting finish. For the very best results, we always recommend using a Farrow & Ball Primer & Undercoat – see above for the correct tone for this colour.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Anazing colour This colour changed from bright and sunny on a morning when the sun shines in the room, to warm and cosy of an evening when table lamps are on.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely colour for our kitchen I used Barbouche to brighten up our kitchen, which had been in a more mustard yellow colour. Looks lovely. Went on well with roller and brush. No issues with painting on already painted walls, thermal liner, liner, and filler. Needed 3 coats, except on already painted which only needed 2. Pot needed a lot of stiring due to thicker paint at bottom of pot (not noted on other Farrow and Ball paint I have previously used). Kept doors and skirting a bright white so far.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful finish I have to say Farrow and Ball are worth the extra cash! The Modern Emulsion has the very slightest eggshell sheen that is fabulous .....

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Kitchen feature wall My parents always said that it pays to spend a little more on your paint - the quality shows. The texture and colour are superb and we covered our feature wall with two coats from a 750ml pot. Babouche is a warm Moroccan yellow that doesn’t overwhelm or feel garish.
